畫皮 II (Painted Skin: The Resurrection) (Blu-ray release 2012-9-11) is a Chinese fantasy movie about a female spirit trying to become a human, and a scar faced princess who loves a general so much that she is willing to make deals with the spirit in order to be with him.  It is not necessary to watch the first Painted Skin movie (2008) for this.  It supposedly has the best CG from China, but it is still far from Hollywood standards.  Although I’m not impressed by the CG quality, the CG direction successfully gives the picture a dreamy feeling.  I also like the story in this movie more than the 2008 version.
