Nurse Ratched and Nurse Itsu talk to each other, but it is only about the patients in the ward, all of whom are men.
Candy and Rose also talk to each other, but again, it is only about McMurphy and the other men in the ward.

I really Love this movie. But in regard to women image, I always mention it as one of the worst I've seen. No women seems human in this movie. They are sadistic monsters without feeling. It passed 2 of 3... Maybe this ranking is not done by a human being neither? I don't think Bechdel test is meant to be apply this way. French bisous anyway.
