THE THIEF, THE WIFE AND THE CANOE Séries 1

2 Épisodes Drama

What’s hiding behind the lace curtains of an English home? John Darwin is just as small and insignificant as his ambitions are huge. His resigned (and desperate) wife watches on as he puts an ingenious idea into action to avoid bankruptcy: faking his own death and claiming the life insurance money. Chris Lang, who wrote the sensational series Unforgotten (starring the amazing Nicola Walker as a detective chief inspector), presents an adaptation of a true story. You need to see the diminutive, stubborn figure of Eddie Marsan floating out to the foggy sea in a canoe to appreciate the dark and poetic humor of a tale that brings together elements of Roy Andersson and Monty Python on Xanax.
