Poro said:
There are several female characters in the film, but they never talk to each other -- I didn't even see the (male) main character's female family members talking to each other. All of the female characters lacked any personal characteristics, apart from the female lead whose only characteristic was "crazy".

Marambra, the female lead character, is explicitly described as "bipolar". I don't think that such a discriminatory term as "crazy" used in the previous comment is appropriate here.
I would also argue that most other characters - female and male - were given the same amount of characteristics. Ige and Bea as two important women in the movie have just as much characteristics (or maybe even more) as for example the Uxball's brother Tito

Tinu disagreed with the rating and said:
This film should pass, although dubiously. Ana asks Maramba why she won't eat and Maramba answers that she is not hungry.
