Have you watched Painted Skin (画皮) lately? If not, I’ll recommend this movie to you. I have been thinking of some of the scenes after watching this movie. I have to agree that this movie did manage to send out some messages successfully. It’s not only a horror movie, but rather a sad + romantic movie overall.
Those who starred in Painted Skin form a strong cast that will not only attract audiences, but would guarantee its quality up to certain level.
Zhou Xun (周迅) + Chen Kun (陈坤) + Zhao Wei (赵薇) + Donnie Yen (甄子丹) + Sun Li (孙俪) + Qi Yu Wu (戚玉武) + Gordon Chan (陈嘉上) the director = Good Box Office!!
Just for your information, Painted Skin is adapted from the classical Chinese Horror Novel (聊斋志异). From what most Chinese people who know about this novel, there are always some erotic details in it. Therefore…
Same thing in Painted Skin movie…(maybe this is one of the reasons why many people dwelled into the cinema for this show)
The songs from this movie are composed by Fujiwara Ikuro (藤原育郎), including this song that I will post today: Painted Heart (画心)
You might find this interesting, this song resembles “心语星愿” from Cecelia Cheung years ago. Both songs are nice in my opinion, similar but tend to differ at their chorus. Jane Zhang (张靓颖) sang it emotionally and proved that she was the best person for this song.
For piano players:
1) This piano sheet is in its original key: I.e. Starts with E Major, transposes to G Major and back to E Major again.
2) Lyrics and chords included
3) Erm….difficulty = moderate. Really! Considering the speed is constant at 65 bpm.
Oh boy…I’m addicted to this song…
