This one will not be easy... It is a milk truck, and the scene is in UK if I remember well

I guess this one is a Bugden Milk Float.

The load area/rear deck on the Budgen looks to be of a lot lower height than he movie vehicle, see the stepped-down roof height, also the front headlight arrangement looks different I think.

There were other narrow width milk floats (Electruk Rider and Ross Helec for example) but I cannot find any with the rear deck and canopy as shown in the movie.

The Electruk and Ross/Helecs had rather small wheels and were based on the Express Dairy chassis design produced by their subsidiary T.H.Lewis Ltd.

Quite a number of coach builders provided special bodies, so this might be one.

I would say for the moment 'Bugden' is the closest we get. I haven't got the DVD and cannot look for better images. Perhaps someone else could do that.

Alexander I believe you are right in saying that there are a number of special bodies or chassis that were re-bodied and existed in the past and that might be a problem when trying to identify them.

Found the identical cab on a Morrison-Electricar Milk Float from the early 1960s as here

Windscreen, wiper housing headlight and bumper all match.

This location is the London Wall, City of London.

The Midland bank seen in the backgroud behind the milk float is now a Chinese Restaurant.
