There is one scene, possibly two, where two women say things near each other but never anything close to a conversation. There's only one significant female role and she really only has conversations with men and male deities.

lili disagreed with the rating and said:
Although conversation between the two named women was minimal, the character of the main woman was well developed with no sexual stereotyping or weaknesses. I think it passes the Bechdel test in spirit, if not in actual letter.

The Bechdel Test is not about spirit, rather it's about whether or not two women have a conversation about anything other than a man. This did not happen; the mark is a fail. You cannot pass a scientific test in "spirit."
