Fritz Lang (German alternative title Fritz Lang - Der Andere in uns) is a 2016 German movie directed by Gordian Maugg. The German star director Fritz Lang, who created silent movie masterpieces with the "Nibelungen" films and "Metropolis", wants something new: he wants to make his first sound film after the bombast of earlier days is no longer in demand. In 1930 he traveled from Berlin to Dusseldorf in search of the right material, where he pursued the police investigation of the well-known criminal council Gennat. Gennat deals with the brutal serial killer Peter Kürten, the "Vampire of Düsseldorf". But as the events unfold and Lang's head forms the plot into a movie that later becomes "M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder", the director is caught up in the unfamiliar surroundings of his past and has to look into abysses he did not expect.

The following weapons were used in the film Fritz Lang:



Dreyse M1907

The Dreyse Model 1907 is the personal sidearm of Fritz Lang (Heino Ferch) and can be seen in most of his movies. He kept it even as he left the Austro-Hungarian army. During several flashbacks of his serving years in 1916, Younger Fritz used it to infiltrate a Russian MG-position. This seems uncommon for Austro-Hungarian officers but Austria purchased many Dreyse pistols to fill the lack of Roth-Steyr M1907 and Steyr M1912 pistols. The younger Ernst Gennat (Rainer Galke) and Fritz' wife Thea (Johanna Gastdorf) are seen with his Dreyse as well.

Steyr Mannlicher M1895

Austro-Hungarian soldiers in Galicia are armed with Steyr Mannlicher M1895 rifles as Fritz describes how he killed for the first time. It is unclear whether it is original M95 or the M1930 Conversion.

Model 24 Stielhandgranate

Some anachronistic Model 24 Stielhandgranaten can be seen next to the Austrian trench. A better choice would be Model 16 Stielhandgranate or a Rohr Handgranate.
