Palm Trees in the Snow (Palmeras en la nieve)
This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
Palm Trees in the Snow (Palmeras en la nieve) is a Spanish 2015 romantic drama film directed by Fernando Gonzalez Molina and adapted from the novel by Luz Gabas. The story depicts the life of Kilian (Mario Casas) who lived in 1950s-1960s on the African island of Fernando Po (modern Bioko), at that time a Spanish colony.
The following weapons were used in the film Palm Trees in the Snow (Palmeras en la nieve):
Llama style pistol
Large frame M1911-style pistols are seen in the hands of Kilian's brother Jacobo De Rabaltue (Alain Hernández), cocoa plantation foreman Gregorio (Luis Callejo), local rebel Atsu (Malcolm Treviño-Sitté), and an officer of the Equatorial Guinea armed forces. Due to the external extractor, slanted slide serrations, and slightly extended barrel these pistols (or pistol, if a single prop is reused) resemble such Llama pistols as the Model 8 or Model IX-A (late versions of both models lack vent ribs that are seen on samples) but the grip has a flat mainspring housing that isn't common for Llama pistols.
Unidentified Pistol 1
When Jacobo De Rabaltue (Alain Hernández) fires at local man Mosi, his pistol switches to another model, possibly some compact Star or Llama model.
Unidentified Pistol 2
During the scene set in 1968 when the Spaniards leave Fernando Po, an officer of the Equatorial Guinea Army is armed with an unknown pistol. It is definitely a model from the 1990s-2000s, not fitting for the time when the story is set.
Equatorial Guinea troops are widely armed with Star Z-45 submachine guns.
Some soldiers of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea are armed with AKMs.
Some AK-47s are also seen.
Heckler & Koch G3/CETME Model C
In the scene set in Malabo (former Santa Isabel) in 2003, police personnel carry Heckler & Koch G3 or CETME Model C battle rifles (the overall appearance of these guns is nearly identical and there isn't any closeups that would help to identify the exact model).
M43 Spanish Mauser
In the scene set in 1954, guards on Fernando Po are armed with M43 Spanish Mauser rifles, identified by the typical auxiliary bayonet lug.
