[[3]] Calle mayor [Main Street] (1956) [imdb]

Juanfraner said:
Isabel (Bersy Blair) talks to her mother (María Gámez). Her mother's name is never mentioned, and the characters always refer to her as "mother" or "mom". They talk always aboit Isabel's "boyfrend/fiance".

Isabel talks several times with the maid (Matilde Muñoz Sampedro), and the conversations are plot-relevant and critical to define and develop the Isabel character. The maiden is called "Chacha", which translates as "Maid", but is used as a nickname by Isabel. Even not a real name, I think it counts, so the movie passes the three tests.
