There are three named female characters in this film, and there are several scenes in which they speak with each other. However, Salma Hayek's character, Habibeh, is primarily concerned with the whereabouts of her missing husband, so when she's talking to her daughter, it's about him, and when she's talking to her maid, it's either about her husband or about the maid's son's ties to the revolutionaries who have kidnapped him. So I'm not certain that this movie passes.
