|My Friend Ivan Lapshin|
(Moy drug Ivan Lapshin)
My Friend Ivan Lapshin (original title Moy drug Ivan Lapshin) is a Soviet 1984 drama movie directed by Aleksey German. The main character is Ivan Lapshin (Andrei Boltnev), the chief of Ugolovniy Rosysk (criminal police) in a small town in mid-1930s. The story depicts mostly not his service but his personal drama of love to a woman who prefers Lapshin's close friend Khanin (Andrey Mironov).
The following weapons were used in the film My Friend Ivan Lapshin (Moy drug Ivan Lapshin):
A TT-33 is Ivan Lapshin's (Andrei Boltnev) personal firearm. Though TT-30s and TT-33s were already produced in 1934, this most modern Soviet sidearm hardly could be used by militsia in a small town.
