I mostly agree with the rating. Amelie talks about men with all of the other named women in the movie. However, yes, Amandine, the mother, teaches her some reading for a moment.
I agree that that scene probably gives it a dubious pass rating.
That said, the other scenes Bpetroglyph mentions don't really pass, I'd say.
When she briefly interacts with the female Bretodeau, they're talking about the male Bretodeau... a man.
The person of interest who lived in the aparment in the 60s... is a man, he has a name... Bretodeau.
The newspaper lady has no name.
I agree that Amelie and the air-hostess Philomene have a conversation, but it's effectively about Amelie's dad, a man. The gnome plot which they discuss revolved entirely around him.
Right at the start, there is a brief scene where Amelie is being taught how to read by her mother.
There is a very brief dialogue between two named women when Amelie is looking for the wrong Bretodeau. She briefly interacts with the female Bretodeau, the one who offers her a cup of tea. Amelie only responds with "No, I've got work to do."
Her discussion with her landlady Madeleine Wallace touches upon more than Madeleine's failed marriage: Amelie asks her about who lived in her apartment in the 60s.
Then there's a brief dialogue between Georgette and the newspaper lady, about improved health. Small talk, and I'm not sure the newspaper lady has a name.
Amelie also has a brief conversation with her air hostess friend (whose name me escapes me), where they discuss the consequences that the garden gnome plan has had in the hostess's workplace ("Did it work?" -- "Perfectly, you couldn't have done a better job"-- "If you need me to do this again, just say so. The harm's done anyway: They call me Snow-White").
In all, I'd say 3/3, but dubious (i.e. very brief interactions, usually small talk).
