The only reason this particular film attains passes two of the tests is because of ONE scene, where two named female characters speak briefly of a man before spitting in his glass.

Was that scene really with TWO named female characters? Of course Claire was named, but I can't recall the other woman actually being mentioned by name.

In fact I can't remember any named female character in the whole movie except for Claire.

I agree with Daniel, the only named female character in this movie was Claire. The other female was unnamed.

I would give it a 0 out of 3. Not only is the other woman unnamed, but they don't really talk. Their interaction lasts seconds, with the unnamed female character only barely addressing Claire, and Claire mentioning Stahl in a one-liner while the other woman silently spits in the glass. Not really a conversation.

There was a scene where Cambell got a record with a message from his wife and kids. They were all named and speaking to each other in that message. I don't know if it really counts, but it is something

El Gato disagreed with the rating and said:
It ignores all those women who served in combat in WWII.

That's because this movie isn't about women in WWII. It's literally about the Monument Men *SURPRISE* who were all men. No shit.
