When pregnant, 12-year-old Tui tries to kill herself in a freezing New Zealand lake, Detective Robin Griffin has plenty of questions for the girl. But when Tui suddenly disappears, Griffin finds herself knee-deep in small-town secrets.
In January 2013, it became the first television series ever to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Later, the entire series was screened at the Berlin Film Festival.
Not to reveal too much of anything I am going to say terrific mini series and yes there is a few twist in the plot here and there. brilliant character development. Magnificent scenery, great acting, intuitive story telling. Of course you should know who influenced Jane Campion, David leach she said in a interview I owe a lot to him. If you seen Twin Peaks you will love top of the lake. Peter Mullan plus a great psycho path Is performance is outstanding for some one at age 12 who wanted to be an director became an actor instead. Any local will tell you that New Zealand is Paradise; Top of the Lake tells us about the dark side of that paradise. Elizabeth Moss play a detective who is consumed by the case and also by what happened to her 15 years ago. Peter Mullan plays a psychopath to a T. Holy hunter play this woman who takes damage women and takes them to a remote area in New Zealand that they call Paradise so they can be at peace. she conduct a series of therapy for them. David Wenham Plays an eccentric detective Who falls in love with Robin (Moss). Like I said Nice series with character development and outstanding acting.
