The Bechdel test - for movies

This is the Bechdel test, as applied to women in movies. The idea is to ask, when watching a movie, are there at least two female characters who have names, do they talk to each other and do they talk to each other about something other than men.

Interesting. Play the video.

Just watched ladies in lavender. 2 named main character females who spend the whole movie talking to each other but all the talk's about a bloke. Sigh. There is a 'comment on war' subtext though.
