Sun Alley (Sonnenallee) or Sun Avenue is a 1999 German comedy movie directed by Leander Haußmann. Micha Ehrenreich and his friends live in the GDR of the 70s, in a street that begins in the west and ends in the east - the Berliner Sonnenallee. The apartment is tight, and the neighbor in the Stasi. The West uncle smuggles nylons and a green passport lets Micha's mother age for years. East, west: The most important thing for Micha is Miriam, who in turn wants a West German man. Nevertheless, Micha lays her life at her feet and learns to take it into her own hands.

The following weapons were used in the film Sun Alley:


Makarov PM

The standard sidearm for the Volkspolizei including Obermeister (Master Sergeant) Horkefeld (Detlev Buck), who was also involved in the direction) and the Grenztruppen is the Soviet Makarov PM pistol.
