Venus in Fur (La Vénus à la fourrure)
There are only two characters in the film, a man and a woman, both equally important.

Velleda disagreed with the rating and said:
The rating may not apply, the movie had only two characters Vanda and Thomas.
Not only two named characters, just two characters.
They spend most of the movie talking to each other, without any of them having an upper importance.
They talk about love, romance, domination and submission and couple dynamic but not specifically of "a" man.

1. A woman is the main protagonist of the movie.
2. She couldn't interact with another woman because it's a head to head discussion between a man and a woman. It didn't make sense in the story.
3. She isn't objectify or didn't exist only for a man character.

Jeanne disagreed with the rating and said:
I recently saw this movie and there were only two characters: a man and a woman. And the female character was not there to emphasize the man's superiority, importance, strengh or whatever. I would even say that she is a strong female character, and that this movie is not sexist judging from the way she is presented.
