THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS

Director: Leanne Pooley • 88min • PG

The Topp Twins are New Zealand's most cherished and charmingly irrepressible duo and the world's only yodelling lesbian country-and-western-singing twins. They are also their country's greatest export since rack of lamb and The Lord of the Rings.

This warm-hearted, no-frills and totally Kiwi tribute to a totally Kiwi legend spans 50 years, starting with the twins' humble upbringing on a small dairy farm and leading to their internationally acclaimed present-day tours. Featuring everyone from the sisters, their parents, partners, colleagues and friends, and with a mixture of music and old footage, it's guaranteed to have you clapping throughout. In 2009 the documentary was New Zealand's top grossing film.
