Nine - the musical.

Imdb link.

Bechdel test
: No.

Sexual violence: The main character uses women left right and centre, but there's no rape or abuse.

Other forms of violence: A child is beaten with a cane by a priest, as a punishment.

Other forms of discrimination: The film works from the premise that it is perfectly fine to treat everyone around you like shit, if you're a genius.

Also, artists are stereotypes creators. The degree in which everyone takes stereotypes as true is a measure of the greatness of the artist. The film glorifies the "passionate Mediterranean" idea.

The only woman who is not idolised or used, that is, the only one that the artist treats as human, is the only unsexy one. In this case, because she's old.
