|To Paris! (Na Parizh)
To Paris! (Na Parizh) is a Russian 2019 (filmed 2018) war movie directed by Sergey Sarkisov. The plot is set in May 1945. The war in Europe is over. Several Soviet officers go AWOL, take a German staff car and head from Berlin for Paris.
Note: Despite the presence of an exclamation mark on the film poster, the Russian title of the movie does not contain it, but it is present in the English title, as it can be seen on the award of UK Film Festival 2019.
The following weapons were used in the film To Paris! (Na Parizh):
Nagant M1895 (airsoft)
Some Soviet officers and NCOs carry holsters for Nagant M1895 revolvers, but these holsters are possibly empty. The only revolver is seen in holster of Sr. Lt. Kakha Bakhrzadze (Tornike Kvitatiani) but judging by the image on the film poster where Bakhrzadze is shown holding the revolver (he never does it in the movie), the Nagant is an airsoft replica, probably a Gletcher NGT.

(Sgt. Maj.) at the left carries a Nagant holster.
Sr. Lt. Aleksey Eliseev (Kirill Zaytsev) carries a Nagant holster.
An officer at the right carries a universal holster for Nagant and TT-33

A fragment of film poster shows Bakhrzadze holding the Gletcher Nagant.
TT-33 pistols are seen in hands of the commander of tank battalion Maj. Aleksandr Voronin (Dmitriy Pevtsov) and officer of the counter-intelligence service SMERSH Maj. Stoletov (Sergey Makovetskiy).

Voronin draws his pistol when he meets a group of German soldiers, before releasing that they surrender.
Stoletov holds a TT during the accidental confrontation with American soldiers.
Capt. Mikhail Sterzhnyov (Evgeniy Stychkin) carries a TT-33 in holster. Judging by the grip of the pistol, this is an airsoft replica.
The grip of Sterzhnyov's holstered pistol is seen. Note the hole of the pressure key and the cover of the compartment for the CO2 cylinder.
An SS officer fires a Luger P08. Several German officers carry universal holsters for P08 and P38 pistols.
Surrenderring German officers, including a General (Aleksandr Rapoport), carry universal holsters for P08/P38.
An SS officer fires his pistol at Voronin. The jointed arm of the Luger doesn't move, so the muzzle flame is probably a CGI.
The officer is gunned down by Klyukvin, firing a PPS-43
Maj. Aleksandr Voronin (Dmitriy Pevtsov) confiscates a Walther PPK from German Gen. von Wartensleben (cameo of film director Sergey Sarkisov).
Walther PPK - 9mm Kurz aka .380 ACP. Note the ring just behind the magazine.

Voronin gifts the pistol to an American Lieutenant (Anatoliy Burnosov).
An US Army Corp. Cairo (Mikhail Khmurov), the commander of road block on the bridge across Elbe river, carries an M1911-style pistol in holster. Black grips are uncommon for WW2 era pistols; like some other guns in the movie, this pistol is possibly an airsoft gun or Denix non-firing replica.
Many Soviet soldiers are armed with PPSh-41 submachine guns.

Denix M1928A1 Thompson
Corp. Cairo (Mikhail Khmurov) carries a Thompson M1928A1. Upon closer examination, it turns out to be a Denix M1928A1 Thompson (for some reason, the official Denix advertising video calls it "M1", although the web catalogue is correctly identified as M1928A1).

The rifle is seen at the right. The wooden parts look somewhat unnatural; possibly this gun is a kind of a replica, like Denix M1 Garand.
Another one US Army soldier on the road block carries an M1 Carbine.

A soldier at the left carries an M1 Carbine.
The M1 Carbine is seen at the background. Note the bayonet lug that appeared only on late 1945 version, so this rifle hardly fits for May 1945.
In one scene a DP-27 is seen mounted on a Soviet motorcycle.
