Many named female characters: Lumina, Aunt Scylla, Kuda, Queen Lorelei, Cora and Sandrine. They all talk to each other about a variety of topics including going to the palace, Lumina's magic, Lumina's job as a hairdresser, etc.

Sean disagreed with the rating and said:
I haven't seen the movie, but I wonder whether it has been screened using the bechdel test properly. For such a test to be viable, it needs to be screened from both a male AND female perspective.

I don't really understan what you mean. The site's rules are about female characters. This movie passes those guidelines. FWIW it does pass the reverse test (are you saying that if it did pass the reverse test it fails?). I'm still not sure why it's not "properly screened."
