Director Statement

"Mr Cogito And The Pearl" is above all an erotic. Except that what's erotic in this film is not about the body, but about the mind. The film poses questions how (and if at all) have the social roles changed in recent years, it also highlights the importance of the historical and social context (the adaptation takes place within two time periods) and emphasizes the invariability of certain features of human nature.
