The movie count 3 named womans, Agatha (major character), Madame D and Clothilde (minor characters).

Agatha never talk with any of the other woman, nether the other woman with etch other.

Agatha talk about many topics (bakery, jail break, politic, poetry) outside of her relationship with Zero, but only with man.

Don't past the test but still a good movie.

Clearly a male chauvinism party. Disturbing lack of female presence.
A curiosity.

Disgusting movie that celebrates male-centric relationships while severely putting women down and making a mockery at how "ignorant" the "women folk" are. Doesn't pass the test AT ALL.

Homophobic slurs, M Gustav objectified women constantly and teaches the young lobby boy his ways, women characters were weak clumsy and killed.

I'm disappointed because I really loved this movie. Questions for Amazed and Missy: do you think that the film itself is chauvinistic and disgusting, or could it just be that the world and time in which the film takes place was a chauvinistic world, and the film accurately portrays that setting?

And what are people's thoughts regarding other Wes Anderson films?

David disagreed with the rating and said:
Agatha is at the heart of everything Zero does. I think the way women are spoken of and treated is not glorified, but within the context of the characters and the time it was portraying. At the end of the film it's made absolutely clear (if you haven't worked it out already) that Gustave is just as needy and lonely as the elderly women he 'entertains' - I can't see how this is a chauvinistic point of view. Wes Anderson has, in my opinion, treated female characters better than a lot of other directors over the years. Just look at the love he clearly has for all of the Tenenbaums, and both the leads in Moonrise Kingdom.

Complete sausage parade. It is insane how huge this cast is and how few females are in it. I liked this movie but sweet heaven could we get some lady cameos? Tilda played a great corpse and all but could we really not spare any more girls? And maybe give her some lines? Agatha is nice but she's the Love Interest and has no arc of her own.
