This one is somewhat tricky. The only conversation between women is a job interview between Mia and Sebastian's mother, regarding the position as Sebastian's assistent/caregiver. As part of the interview, Mia describes herself in a sentence or two, before they discuss Sebastian and the actual job.

Considering all of the conversation is related to Sebastian and everything has to do with the job as his caregiver, I consider the whole conversation to be about a man; even though not every word of it actually is. In other words, the film passes 2 out of 3 tests in my opinion.

But I'm sure some people will probably argue that the film should pass all three tests (although barely) because of the few seconds where Mia describes herself.
