A very touching road movie
3 August 2018 | by See all my reviews

The Argentinian film El último traje was shown in the U.S. with the translated title of The Last Suit. It was written and directed by Pablo Solarz.

The movie stars Miguel Ángel Solá as Abraham Bursztein, a Holocaust survivor now living safely, if not happily, in Argentina. He decides on the spur of the moment to travel back to Poland to say goodbye to a friend who saved his life.

This is actually a road movie, with many twists and turns and adventures along the route. Part of the film adopts the plot of King Lear, which is very strange. Part of it slides toward magical realism. However, it's always interesting and never boring.

Miguel Ángel Solá is a superb actor. This film would not be worth watching if an inferior actor played Abraham. Solá carries it off with skill and conviction.

We watched this movie on the large screen at the excellent Dryden Theatre at the George Eastman Museum. It was shown as part of the wonderful Rochester Jewish Film Festival. The film has a weak IMDb rating of 6.9. Don't be deterred by the low rating. It's a movie to be sought out and enjoyed.
