A young Japanese Gen-xer decides to clean up the streets by shooting those whose actions he deems unacceptable.
The pain, yearning and confusions of youth are mingled in "Tokyo Eyes," filmed by a French director in the Japanese capital. The director and screenwriter is Jean-Pierre Limosin, whose intriguing but ultimately irresolute tale of a strange young man and the pretty young woman drawn to him illuminates adolescent and post-adolescent rootlessness and sensitivity, urban anomie and the perplexities of first love. - Lawrence Van Gelder
