Im doing a list the the woman as muse. Can you think of any films aside from the most obvious Amelie that deal with this subject matter.
I don’t know if this is helpful or not but LOOK into Audry Hepburn she was the actress in Sabrina, Two for the Road & They all laughed.
He may already know who Hepburn is.
Albert Brooks’ The Muse
Down to Earth and Xanadu, if you want a literal muse. Terpsichore in both instances, played by Rita Hayworth and Olivia Newton John respectively.
Dante’s Inferno, the Ken Russell film, deals with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his wife/muse Elizabeth.
Shakespeare in Love maybe, Henry and June, maybe Girl with a Pearl Earring? Those are all artists and female inspiration films, if you want something more interpretative, then you might have to give something more to work with as to what exactly you mean.
Henry and June, Shakespeare in Love
the bakery girl of monceau!
also, love me if you dare is a favorite of mine…
