Tim Burton's newest film trailer has fans of the macabre master staring into a set of very large, very peculiar, somewhat familiar eyes.

The title of the movie is, fittingly, "Big Eyes." It tells the story of two once married artists, Margaret and Walter Keane, who rose to fame in the 1950s and '60s. Their subject of choice -- doe-eyed children reminiscent of Precious Moments characters gone wrong.


Precious Momentsというのはディズニーの人形のようです。



(オックスフォード)
doe-eyed
(Especially of a woman) having large, gentle dark eyes:
doe-eyed waifs


Websterには「having large eyes that make you look innocent」とありますから、日本語の「つぶらな瞳」の語感に近そうです。

Manga's Doe-Eyed Girls, Ninja Boys Woo U.S. Comic-Book Readers
Review by Lucy Birmingham - January 22, 2008 10:06 EST
Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Doe-eyed girls with melon-sized breasts, slasher samurai, resilient teenage heroines wielding magical powers and adventurous ninja boys: Japan's manga artists know how to hook an audience.

More than 35,000 groups of amateurs sold their versions on Dec. 28-31 at the world's biggest comic market, in Tokyo International Exhibition Center, or Tokyo Big Sight. The biannual event, known in Japan as a comiket, drew a crowd of more than 500,000. Producers of doujinshi, or lookalike copies of established manga characters, rubbed shoulders with Japan's top three manga publishers, Shueisha, Shogakuan and Kodansha, as potential copyright violations are rarely contested.

And so visually his works take many styles, from the doe-eyed portrayals typical of Japanese manga, in the 1988 "Grave of the Fireflies," a powerful anti-war tear-jerker, to the oil-painting inspired "Gauche the Cellist," a tasteful 1982 rendition of a classic by early 20th century poet-writer Kenji Miyazawa.

まあ単刀直入にAnime-style eyesと説明している動画もありました。



ちょくちょく調べてみると日本語でもバンビ目何て言うんですね。Doeとは鹿のメスなのでまったく同じ発想です。日本語のバンビ目はディズニー映画の影響でしょうが。。。
