Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice, alternate titel The Shape of Voice) meets all criteria.

The movie has more than two female characters in it and they are talking to each other. The topics of the conversations are various, they talk about their past at elementary school, about how the female character got bullied and yes, in some cases they talk about the male main character Shoya Ishida as well (example when Naoka and Shoko where in the ferris wheel Naoka blames Shoko for Ishida losing all his friends back then.) Other topics are some kind of special, for example when Miki asks Shoko why she tried to kill herself. In conclusion I think Koe no Katachi is meeting criteria for passing the Bechdel Test.

Koe no Katachi has multiple conversations between girls not talking about men, such as when Shoko asks Miki about killing herself. If you disagree with the talking about men part, there are also still obviously 2 females mentioned, examples Shoya and Naoka and they also talked in the ferris wheel about Ishida, proving another test true.

tontee disagreed with the rating and said:
This movie passes the test in multiple scenes. An example is when Miyoko Sahara and Shoko Nishimiya reunite and discuss what they have done since they last saw each other. Not to mention more than one scene between sisters Yuzuru and Shoko.
