The Little Soldier (Le petit soldat) is a 1963 (filmed 1960) French drama directed by Jean-Luc Godard. The story is set during the Algerian War. A French journalist Bruno Forestier (Michel Subor) lives in Switzerland. He works for French right-wing organisation, but once he is suspected to be a double agent. To prove his innocence, Forestier must kill a pro-FLN (National Liberation Front of Algeria) activist. Meanwhile, Forestier falls in love with Veronica Dreyer (Anna Karina), who also appears to be tied to the FLN.

The following weapons were used in the film The Little Soldier (Le petit soldat):


Vis wz. 35

Bruno Forestier (Michel Subor) own a Vis wz. 35. In one scene Jacques (Henri-Jacques Huet) holds a Vis (probably same prop reused) instead of his usual Luger.

Pocket revolver

In the final scene Veronica Dreyer (Anna Karina) draws a pocket revolver of unclear model. It is supposed to be a kind of blank firing gun, possibly a starter gun.
