This movie has several main women characters, in addition to the main character, Gloria (Paulina Garcia). Still for being a story about a woman's soul-searching journey, it still has only a little woman to woman non-man-centric dialogue. That said, their isn't much dialogue at all. Gloria is still a strong lead woman character. It might even fail a reverse Bechdel test - e.g. no two men talked to one another in the movie.

Gloria speaks to Victoria (her maid?) in her house about the cat and in general the usefulness of cats. Victoria tells the story about Noah and about a lion sneezing out cats which controls the mice on the arc. Victoria and Gloria pass a few words at the end of the movie too.

Gloria speaks briefly with her ex-husband's new wife, Flavia about marijuana at Pedro's birthday Party.

Gloria speaks to an un-named woman character in the casino, very briefly, to decide what to bet on, before men enter the scene.

Gloria also speaks to her daughter, Ana about yoga and a bit of pleasantries. In the car at the airport they have a goodbye discussion where Gloria insists on walking Ana to the door.
