Executed (Les Fusillés), The
Les Fusillés is a 2015 French World War I movie directed by Philippe Triboit. During the Great War, six French soldiers from the same village are separated from their company following a German bombing. When they finally return to their unit, they are accused of cowardice in the face of the enemy and condemned to be executed.
The following weapons were used in the film Les Fusillés:
Pistols and Revolvers
A French NCO delivers a mercy shot with an Mle 1892. Near the end of the film, Bastien (Michael Gregorio) uses an Mle 1892.
During a night raid, the French leader of the squad carries a Ruby pistol.
Fusil Modèle 1907-15
Some French soldiers are armed with the Berthier Mle 1907-15. After the trench battle, Louis changes his Lebel for a Berthier, possibly a continuity error.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
When the French conquered the German trench, some Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifles can be seen near their dead owners.
The only machine gun we can see is the Maxim MG08, which unfortunately is never quite visible. The night raid's objective is to destroy a machine gun nest.
Citron Foug Mle. 1916
French soldiers use Citron Foug modèle 1916 grenades when fighting in no man's land.
During the Great War, soldiers from all sides used many kinds of spent ammunition cases to create tools or decorative objects.
