Sofia and her mother talk to each other for a good bit of time <i>in Italian</i>. They're definitely talking about Sofia's gentleman caller, but...anyone speak Italian?

Sofia's mother is not a named character, therefore it is 0 for 3.

I would add that, though this war movie, set in WW2, where there were few women, does indeed contain few women, and little development of their character (what with the focus being on a group of black men), it might just perhaps have good reason for not having many female characters.
