The City of Lost Children (1995)

The City of Lost Children (original French title: La cité des enfants perdus) is a 1995 French science fiction film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Alien: Resurrection) and follows the adventures of a circus strongman whose adopted little brother is kidnapped by an evil scientist, who intends to steal children's dreams as he cannot dream himself.

While the film was met with mixed reception, the props and practical effects would inspire the visuals of Fallout: A Post-Nuclear Role-Playing Game.

The following weapons were used in the film The City of Lost Children:

FN Browning 1903

When abducting One's (Ron Perlman) adopted baby brother, one of the "Cyclopes," Bogdan (Dominique Bettenfeld), uses a FN Browning 1903.

Bogdan mistakenly points his handheld listening device at One, instead of his Browning, which is in his other hand.
A quick-thinking Bogdan whips the Browning around after realizing his error.
When the Cyclopes enter the loan shark's office, the short frame, long slide, and heel magazine release are clearly seen.

Webley Mk VI

In the film's climax, Ms. Bismuth (Mireille Mossé), the mad scientist villain Krank's dwarf assistant, uses a Webley Mk VI pistol, seemingly gigantic to her, in an attempt to kill the little girl Miette.

Miss Bismuth retrieves the Webley from within Krank's desk drawer.
Miss Bismuth cocks back the Webley's hammer as she aims at the unsuspecting Miette.
Miss Bismuth is shot herself (with a speargun) before she can fire.

Sawed-Off Shotgun

When confronting circus owner Marcello, "The Octopus'" henchman "The Peeler" (Rufus) carries a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun.

The Peeler holds the shotgun to Marcello's head as the twins interrogate him.
The Peeler is instructed to execute Marcello as the twins exit the room.
As soon as the twins are gone, the Peeler, instead of killing Marcello, spares him and complains about his bosses ordering him around and merely fires the gun into the air to fake Marcello's death.
