Nowhere to Hide (Hangul인정사정 볼 것 없다; RRInjeong sajeong bol geot eobtda) is a 1999 South Korean film written and directed by Lee Myung-se.[1]

The film is set in Incheon in South Korea. A murder is committed, and the cops search for the killer.

Opening up in monochrome but with occasional flashes of colour, the first action scene is a disorientating strobe-like affair. From there the movie proceeds in color, with many innovative editing techniques, including slow-motion, jump cut, step-printed slow motion, "jump dissolves," still frames, and layering images on top of one another.

Park Joong-hoon stars as the obsessive Detective Woo. Jang Dong-gun won the best supporting actor at the Blue Dragon Film Awards for his role as Detective Kim.

The film was a hit at both the inaugural Asia Pacific Film Festival in Sydney, and the Sundance Film Festival, but its American release was limited, brief, and unsuccessful.
