Eighty-eight years old, Abraham Bursztein refuses to bow down to family pressure to move into an assisted living residence. Instead, he embarks on a wild journey to Poland in search of the friend who nursed him back to health when he returned from Auschwitz, more dead than alive. With only his memories and a cast of strangers to aid his journey, Abraham resolves to fulfill the promise he made to his friend seven decades before.
Writer-director Pablo Solarz imbues his heartfelt and charming tale with a nostalgic klezmer-infused score and delicate humor. The Last Suit is ultimately a poignant message of the enduring importance of family, friends, and honor.
Talk Back: Dr. Zsuzsanna Ozsváth; Leah and Paul Lewis Chair in Holocaust Studies, Ackerman Center at UT Dallas.
