Yamakasi (original title Yamakasi – Les samouraïs des temps modernes ("Yamakasi – The samurais of modern times") is a 2001 French crime drama directed by Ariel Zeitoun (Angélique) and Julien Seri and co-written by Luc Besson. The plot was partly inspired by the classic film Seven Samurai.

Note the port in the top of the slide in this shot indicating that this pistol is a compensated. However, typically the Glock 17C features a pair of parallel cuts on the slide rather than a single large one seen here, indicating that this pistol may be an early version, custom gun, or replica of some sort.

Heckler & Koch Mark 23

A Special Forces member can be seen armed with a Heckler & Koch Mark 23. The iron sights (and the thread protector) appear to be missing, but the pistol can be identified as a Mark 23 by the threaded barrel, squared trigger guard and the frame step behind the accessory rail. It is likely a rubber prop and not a real MK23.
