I saw and can recommend the film Paterson, by Jim Jarmusch, which is a loving tribute to the art in everyday city life as found through walking, public transport, sitting and being with the city and its inhabitants (and also through home decor, popular music, and baking), and is highly relevant to flaneurs' interests.

Rotten Tomatoes is currently rating it at critics 95% positive and audience 78% liked:

I saw it and loved it and I think I know the trope you mean and agree wholeheartedly.

What I liked most is that while she has some MPDG qualities, the plot wasn't about him meeting her and her fixing his life. Instead we them having a life together and appreciating one another.
