Wild Target (original title Cible émouvante) is a 1993 French crime comedy directed by Pierre Salvadori. Victor Meynard (Jean Rochefort), a professional killer, gets a contract on young woman Renée Dandrieux (Marie Trintignant) who cheated a Corsican mobster, selling him a fake Rembrandt painting. But events turns in a very strange way...
In 2009 the film was remade in UK.
The following weapons were used in the film Wild Target (Cible émouvante):
Jericho 941 R
Victor Meynard (Jean Rochefort) owns two Jericho 941 R pistols. He uses one of these pistols with sound suppressor; the other one he gives to his apprentice Antoine (Guillaume Depardieu).
