To the Ends of the World (Les confins du monde) is a French 2018 war drama directed by Guillaume Nicloux. The story is set in Indochina in 1945. In March 1945 a French garrison is massacred by Japanese forces, and Robert Tassen (Gaspard Ulliel) is the only survivor among soldiers and civilians while his brother is among the dead. In Autumn 1945 Tassen is in charge of a unit composed of Viet Minh defectors.

The following weapons were used in the film To the Ends of the World (Les confins du monde):

Unidentified pistol
