1. Having the time to watch rainbows from the crystal in my window dancing round the room.
2. An opulent costume drama. The Curse of the Golden Flower reminds me of Gormenghast with its secrets, endless corridors, clockwork rituals and poetically-named terraces. I loved the scale of it -- the picture often focused on one servant working and then pulled back to show the same task repeated over and over again.
3. A few kisses snatched in a darkened hallway.
