Carlos (2010)

Carlos is a 2010 biographical drama about the career of notorious terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, better known as "Carlos the Jackal". Directed by Oliver Assayas and starring Edgar Ramirez in the titular role, Carlos was released as both a three-part, 540-minute television mini-series and as a shorter, 140-minute film.

While in Paris, Carlos carries a CZ 50 pistol, which he calls a "Vzor 50" when showing it off to his girlfriend.
