Fun, disarming and musically provocative, the Topp Twins are New Zealand’s finest lesbian country-and-western singers and the country’s greatest export since rack of lamb and the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Irresistible documentary about twin yodeling, country singing, lesbian comedians from New Zealand. Traces their career from their humble beginnings on a rural farm, to their political activism, to their current status as national icons, "The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls" is an utterly delightful and heartfelt doc about two unique and indomitable talents.
Charming (though a bit reverential) look at these groundbreaking and door opening twins. The filmmaker wisely cuts away from the subdued and ordinary framing concert at every opportunity using the music as a backdrop for the sister's fascinating history. I would love to see the Topp Twins tour with a reunited Romanovsky and Phillips.
