Big overhead source perhaps neutrally balanced color?

That is a low contrast desaturated look done mostly in the color grade with the blacks boosted a bit.  It was most likely shot in some sort of log or flat curve on an overcast day.

Thx for the replys ...but I can go about dropping the contrast and desaturate the footage. But how would I boost the blacks ?

You will need editing software that has a three way color correcting tool or a third party plug in.  This will allow you to control the Shadows, Midtones, and Highlights.

Ok this is what it look like after low contrasting, desaturating, and boosting shadows!

Getting closer.  I'd say desaturate a bit more, bring the mids down a tad and push a little towards blue.  Play around with it until it matches to your taste.
