The protagonist (a female) and the mother talk to each other about a porcelain doll-like representation of an 8 year old boy. I would say that this film passes all three tests.

Shouldn't it still be a 2/3? The two women clearly talk about a man, though he is a child.

I agree with bird.
The women are talking about the doll yes, but the mother believes that to be her son and refers to the doll as her son. Since that’s the case they are talking about a man.
