There are some women which are essential to the actions and events in this movie. Especially Mayka, who is the owner of several international businesses, and a chemist tycoon herself, behaves in a bossy and controlling way, but we always see her talking to men - sometimes bossing them around. Carla is the spark which triggers off the murder, but she talks mainly to her accomplice, Alex, who's in an awful mess with the police. However, I think there is a conversation which makes this film follow the second and third criteria: Mayka's sisters, Luna and Gloria, talk about Mayka's wedding, and that it was a miracle she didn't decide to scrap the whole thing off; there is a second part of this conversation in which they conclude that Mayka was powerful and perfect - her perfection being highlighted by several other characters throughout the film.
