Storyline

A young man shooting at people is nicknamed Four Eyes in the press because of his thick-lensed glasses. The young Hinano, sister of a policeman who is on the case, recognized the mysterious 'killer' by the way he acts in the metro. She follows him to find out where he lives. Ready to inform against him, something will stop her... Written by Jean-Marie Berthiaume <jiembe@videotron.ca>

Good love movies exist!
18 May 2001 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

I always thought there were no good love movies in this world. Films like "Thorn Birds", "Gone with the wind", "Titanic" and "Love Story" with all that crying-suffering&dying stuff full of exaggeration never really touched me. Another reason I don't like these movies is that they completely lack in style.

However: The 90s have been extremely generous to us, giving us three excellent love movies full of style & magic: "Los Amantes del Círculo Polar", "Der Krieger und die Kaiserin" and this gem.

"Tokyo Eyes" is full of cool music, excellent camera work, cute scenes, and good storytelling, creating a mood that absorbed me right from the beginning. It's not pretentious in any way and it didn't annoy or bore me for a single second (As most other love movies do). The last five minutes are fantastic and contain one scene that in my opinion is one of the best in movie history (at least in terms of camera work). Shinji Takeda does a great job as "K" and Hinano Yoshikawa covers her missing acting skills by cuteness beyond good or evil. The cameo by Takeshi Kitano is nice as well.

P.S: Though I wouldn't consider this movie to be utterly weird or totally different from standard Hollywood movies, some people may find it too slow-paced, lacking in action or even pointless.

10 points out of 10.
