La Ronde (1950)

Directed by Max Ophüls

An all-knowing interlocutor guides us through a series of affairs in Vienna, 1900. A soldier meets an eager young lady of the evening. Later he has an affair with a young lady, who becomes a maid and does similarly with the young man of the house. The young man seduces a married woman. On and on, spinning on the gay carousel of life.

This rich dessert of a film is probably not for everybody (and probably not even for me at every moment...), but it is the perfect film for this particular "You know what...? Sure, why not, yes, please do bring over the dessert cart, my man." kind of moment. Saying that, I'll always be nostalgic for the nostalgia towards the Belle Epoque...
