In this French-Japanese drama, Tokyo cop Roy (Tetta Sugimoto) is on the "Four Eyes" case, searching for punk K (Shinji Takeda), who goes about shooting at various people in positions of authority. K's thick-lensed glasses have caused him to be nicknamed "Four Eyes" in newspaper articles. Roy's sister, 17-year-old Hinano (Hinano Yoshikawa) spots Four Eyes one day, follows and befriends him, and even after seeing him shoot at people, she remains attracted to him. The film features a cameo by Takeshi Kitano. Shown in the Certain Regard section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
