The Last Suit Movie Review

Nicely Pressed

"The Last Suit," the latest film by Argentine director/writer Pablo Solarzhat, starts out on a downbeat note as a family is pushing its patriarch out the door and into an old people's home. But, it then becomes a sweet, dramatic, and occasionally amusing tale of a senior citizen accomplishing a lifelong goal.

Abraham Burtzstein (Miguel Angel Sola) is a retired 88-year-old tailor living in Buenos Aires whose family has sold his house out from under him. They aren't overtly mean to him. They smile and kiss him while pushing him out his own door.

In the middle of the night before he is to move to his new home, Abraham calls a cab and heads out on his own. All we learn is that he wants to go to Poland to accomplish a near-lifelong goal, and that he is carrying with him a garment bag that contains a suit.

"The Last Suit" is all about Abraham's physical and personal mental journey into his own past and towards the place where his life began. Along the way he meets many strangers who dislike him initially but all end up helping him in one way or another. His encounter with Maria (Ángela Molina), the lady behind the desk at a small hotel he checks into, is particularly rewarding. These interactions are what makes it all worth the viewer's time.

Near its end, the final details of the reasons for his trek are revealed. It's all about his long put-off quest to find someone he knew seventy years earlier. The last few scenes are as tear-jerking and manipulative as can be, but when everything is done right by director Solarz and you have a pitch-perfect performance by the lead character, it's fine to just succumb to the manipulation.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.
