I saw this yesterday, and am only thinking of it in relation to the Bechdel Test as an afterthought.

However, I'm pretty sure there are a few conversations between the lead (Alice Ovitz) and other female characters that fit the criteria, though at a stretch - eg with Madame Gozlan in the pharmacy, or with her sister, Hélène, about her niece.

I may be wrong, though, as it may be men come up in the conversations I'm thinking of (e.g. I think Madame Gozlan mentions her grown-up sons, but not sure if it's the same conversation).
