The two female characters are Beatrice (played by Noomi Rapace) and her mother (played by Isabelle Huppert), and they do speak to each other in the beginning of the film about something that doesn't involve a man, but it lasts about 10 - 20 seconds so I'm not sure if it counts.

trina B disagreed with the rating and said:
I don't think 10-20 seconds counts if that's the only dialogue between women in the entire movie...

the two women interact with each other often, but I believe they only speak about the daughter dating.

The conversations between mother and daughter, even those that reference a man, are about much more than 'dating'; the mother is encouraging the daughter to move past a devastating experience by, among other things, engaging with a man.
