Description

Original title: El último traje

2018 Cine Latino Audience Choice Winner!

Encore theatrical run starting Friday, December 7 at MSP Film Society's St. Anthony Main Theatre.

Cranky, crafty and always immaculately dressed, aged master tailor Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Ángel Solá) finds himself facing his winter years in a retirement home after discovering his children have sold his home out from under him. Not one to go quietly, and feeling the pressure of a secret lifelong debt bearing down on him, Abraham unexpectedly sets out from Buenos Aires en route to Poland, a country whose name he refuses to utter, in order to deliver a suit to childhood friend Piotrek, who once saved Abraham’s life during the waning days of the Nazi occupation. From an unexpected setback in Madrid, where he makes a connection with sexy hotel owner/torch singer Maria (Ángela Molina, Broken Embraces), to the train station in Paris where he faces the reality of having to travel through Germany, a land he swore never to set foot in, Abraham slowly comes to face a lifetime of choices often made in anger and leading to an emotional reckoning with his past in this funny and deeply tender new film from writer/director Pablo Solarz.

Sinopsis española

De mal humor, hábil y siempre vestido de manera inmaculada, el ya envejecido pero maestro sastre Abraham Bursztein (MIguel Ángel Solá) se encuentra a sí mismo, en sus años tardíos, en un hogar de ancianos después de descubrir que sus hijos han vendido su casa sin avisarle. Pero él no es un hombre que se deje derrotar en silencio y, sintiendo la presión de una promesa que lo ha acompañado toda la vida, Abraham inesperadamente se embarca de Buenos Aires a Polonia, un país cuyo nombre se rehúsa a pronunciar, para entregarle un traje a su amigo de infancia Piotrek, quien una vez le salvó la vida durante los últimos días de la ocupación nazi. En su viaje, Abraham tiene un repentino percance en Madrid, donde conecta con María (Ángela Molina, Los abrazos rotos) la dueña de un hotel y cantante de baladas; luego en la estación de tren de París se da cuenta de que tiene que viajar a través de Alemania, un país que habría jurado jamás pisar. A través de su viaje, Abraham lentamente enfrenta una vida de decisiones usualmente tomadas con rabia, llevándolo a aceptar su pasado en esta graciosa y profundamente tierna nueva película del escritor y director Pablo Solarz. Ganadora de los premios de Audiencia en los Festivales de Santa Bárbara y Miami y del premio del público al mejor actor para Miguel Ángel Solá en el Festival Internacional de Seattle.
