Quo Vadis (Where are we going), Baby, is a pretty good contemporary noir story.
Angela Baraldi does a great job as Giorgia, the central character whose sister committed suicide many years ago. The arrival of a box full of video tapes initiates opening of old memories and old wounds. Ada is not seen as suicidal, but the holes in the story start to fill in nicely, with surprises constantly causing one to re-evaluate the "who done it" question.
Despite plot development being primary we get nicely tuned views of Giorgia, her sister Ada, their father Il Capitano and other players.
The cinematography is a bit dull, but not distracting. Even with subtitles I thought the dialog was interesting and carried forward the plot and character development.
The ending is very Indie, with surprises to be had and with some thinking to be done. Definitely worth a watch.
