This film is a masterpiece but does not have TWO named female characters. The only named female character's name is Maria. There is another important female character (a fortune teller) but she doesn't have a name and is instead credited as the Charitable Lady.

Actually, I have realised that 'the Charitable Lady' can also be counted as a name and because she is an important character, and there are 2 named female characters now, the film should get 1/3.

Actually can we make it 2? I've realised that The Charitable Lady CAN be considered as a name. And she and Maria talk to each other, although it is about the male protagonist who has lost his bicycle.
