The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls Reviews

Page 1 of 2
Brandon Judell
indieWIRE

These butch lesbian sibling farmers, who have a comedy singing act (acoustic country songs), are shown fighting for gay rights and surviving cancer over the decades, and they are endearing in their suits and fake moustaches.

Pooley could have been more probing in her interviews with the twins and their supporters. But the fact of the duo's success is so astounding you're gripped all the same.

The more you learn about the twins the more of a fan you are likely to become and The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is the very essence of a crowd-pleaser.

With a cheeky attitude and a live-and-let-live message, the Topps are irresistible ambassadors for New Zealand, where a daft sense of humor appears to be a key natural resource.

Pooley's approach is a bit paint-by-numbers, but her film is upbeat without being calculatedly feel-good.

Take the Indigo Girls and spice them up with some k.d. lang, Dame Edna, Minnie Pearl, the AbFabers, Monty Python and Rodney Dangerfield then apply kiwi accents and you might begin to get an idea of what the Topp Twins are like.

A film that is shot straightforwardly -- to the point of being visually unimaginative -- but that benefits enormously from the overflowing charisma of its subjects.

Although claims of their having "an extraordinary effect on people, from all walks of life" may be exaggerated, the world needs to hear these two.

Terrifically entertaining documentary about New Zealand's lesbian Topp Twins and their extraordinary career is a heart-warming eye-opener that provides insights into so much more than the sexual orientation of its two remarkable subjects.

Pooley successfully conveys that joie de vivre, erring only when including too-invasive scenes of Jools's breast-cancer treatments.
