There are very few characters, and while close, I gave it the first element because two of them are female even though one’s character is “Woman,” because “Woman” seems to be responsible for the introduction of Petur. Also, without the Mom Sheep (RIP), there would have been no Lamb.

However, Maria and “Woman” never speak, nor do Maria and Mom Sheep (though they do interact).

And I can’t tell if the Lamb is a male or female.

Though in all honesty, if the Lamb was a female, this movie may actually pass the test because Maria and Lamb do “speak” in a manner of, well, speaking quite frequently.

All that said, given the spirit of the Bechdel Test, this movie does not pass.

MX disagreed with the rating and said:
It seems that the Lamb is a female and an important character who does interact a lot with Maria. For me this movie pass the test with the manner.
