It's not a real hearse. It's an ambulance -Binz or Miesen, I don't know- disguised as a hearse.

Or converted into a hearse, if this is archive footage of a real funeral.

converted Miesen, as Miesen allways made hearses, too, but different styling

Rather Binz than Miesen, but hard to tell. Ex Ambulance anyway, which is not unusual in Eastern Europe, cf. /vehicle_64327.html and /vehicle_495229.html

So my question again, where this footage -as G-MANN says- is from. The winter-uniforms of the policemen in the blurry background are indeed looking Eastern European. I thought that before, but I was unsure, if anywhere there's common to convert old ambulances into hearses, but as Tönz has shown, it really has happen.
So a scene from Poland maybe?

Sorry - I do not know where it is, but by the fact, that in one Polish film was visible old ambulance converted to the funeral car, doesn't mean it is common here at all. Have seen quite many funerals and have never met such conversion in person (and it was in different places - in bigger, but also in smaller or more poor towns).

This funeral indeed could have taken place everywhere. I've found converted ambulances in Poland (W123 and W124, W115, W124, W124, W124), the Czech Republic (W210, W210, W124), Lithuania (W210, W124, W124) and Romania (W124).

It's supposedly the funeral of Kim-Jong Il, but it's probably taken from old footage of a state funeral from any eastern bloc country.

I thought they might be using it for the death of Kim Jong Il, because they changed the bad guys from China to North Korea. But at the real funeral the coffin was carried on the roof of a Lincoln limousine. Perhaps the director thought that audiences would think it was fake because there was an American car...

Yes. I remember the car blogs were alive with discussion about the irony of the vehicle used for the procession:

But knowing how North Korea is against most western stuff ("evil capitalism", and so on), a german car is not much more believeable.
I guess the move just used stock footage from some funeral somewhere outside the US, and with an older car to "fit the look" of places like North Korea or China.
