The original Korean film ["Hide and Seek"] has far less dialogue. It is much more of an atmospheric movie. For the States, we decided to change that up and make it more of an interconnected family than make them isolated. Even though Noah isolates himself from his family and the people that he meets. "Hide and Seek" asks, how do you become isolated in a city like New York? It's not that hard actually. When there are so many people living that close to each other in a city. Where survival of fittest is a predominant theme, it is very easy to be alone. This is what Noah does, he starts with his family and descends into unit of one. (Source: www.salon.com)
