Nowhere to Hide is an actionart film Its style humor cinematography and endless invention combine to make watching it an great experience Lee Myung-sae has made some fascinating films in the past many of which such as My Love My Bride and First Love have tackled issues of love and marriage This his sixth film draws its inspiration from a more abstract source In a Monet painting Lee says the theme is not the water lily The water lily is just the object to paint light upon As it floats we see its reflection on the water and that is what we call painterly My intention is the same In this film I wanted to show the film The story and the characters are not the main focus of my film Movement is Movement enters the other elements in this film to create kinetic action quoted from a Korea Times article of Aug 11 1999 There are several types of movement which propel this film the physical movement of the actors the visual movement created by lines of composition within the frame movement through time movement towards resolution of the plot a cat-and-mouse chase between a group of cops and a killer and the movement inherent in Lees editing which removes small chunks of the original footage to create a muted staccato-like propulsion he makes frequent use of a jump-dissolve But in contrast to the scattered movement you see in a film such as Wong Kar-Wais Chungking Express the movement in this film is directed inward as it guides us to the final confrontation between the pursuer and the pursued But to focus on the movement in Nowhere to Hide is to ignore its many other remarkable traits 1 The humor I watched this in a packed theater and the crowd was in uproar unfortunately much of the humor does not translate well but the physical humor alone is a delight
