Topp Twins: Untouchable GirlsLeanne Pooley, 84 min, New Zealand.
"The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls" is the first time that the irrepressible Kiwi entertainment double act, Jools and Lynda Topp's extraordinary personal story has been told. The film offers a revealing look into the lives of the World's only comedic, country singing, dancing, and yodeling twin sisters. As well as rarely seen archive footage and home movies, the film features a series of special interviews with some of the Topp's infamous comedy alter-egos including candid chats with the two Kens, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, the Bowling Ladies and the Posh Socialite sisters, Prue and Dilly.
The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is a big story. It’s not just the story of two sisters but also of 25 years of New Zealand history. Quarter a century of cultural changes and the foundation of a national identity. Part concept film, part biopic, part historical record, part comedy, the Twins share their journey from “coming out‟ to Jools' recent brush with Breast Cancer with much laughter, honesty and wisdom.
It is a film about two truly unique New Zealanders which ends up saying as much about us as it does about them.
