My personal favorite has to be Mireille. She´s probably not the kind of woman I´d be friends with in real life, because she can be bitchy at times, but she´s smart, loyal with her friends, enjoys life and the reason why she married her husband is because he makes her laugh.
The movie doesn´t only tell a convincing story (without the artificial drama you see in so many movies) but also offers wonderful fashion and hair inspirations:

Please excuse the quality of the last pictures, I had to make screenshots from the online video because there are nearly no pictures around the web.
You can watch it only on ARTE, but it´s only in german and I don´t know how long it´ll be online. But maybe you want to take a closer look anyways and then you´ll get all excited and need to find the DVD ;).
