Brazil (1985)

The following weapons were used in the film Brazil:


Walther P38

A Walther P38 is used by Harry Tuttle (Robert De Niro) throughout the movie.

Bruni 1911

A guard points a replica theatrical blank only firing Bruni Automatic 8mm Pistol (impersonating an M1911) at the face of Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) when they ask for his invitation to his mother, Ida Lowery's, party. Usually replica guns which can never fire blanks out of the front of the barrel are used when either pointed at child actors or held close to an actor's face (usually for safety and the comfort of the actor).
