Iza said:
The lead character, Malèna, is the one being talked (gossiped, really) about by the other women in the film.

Dwij disagreed with the rating and said:
None of the women who gossip about her are named. Anyway, this film is highly misogynistic when presenting the title character (exploiting her) as the Victim and other women as stereotypical, ugly 'bitches' who hate her.
