Emotional Arithmetic

In 1945, Jakob Bronski, a young dissident held at Drancy, takes two children, Melanie and Christopher, into his charge. 40 years later, Melanie discovers that a now elderly Jakob, whom she believed had been taken from Drancy to Auschwitz and killed, is still alive. She immediately invites him to live with her and her family on their farm in Canada. Jakob arrives with Christopher as a surprise for Melanie and both must face the truth of the bond between them. The past explodes into the present in an unexpected and tender love story altering life for themselves and for those around them.
Studied Painting and Graphic Arts at the Académie Julian in Paris and at UCLA before turning to cinema. He started his professional career as an assistant to Jean Renoir and, since then, has directed numerous telefilms and TV series, including the acclaimed 15/Love, for which he received a Gemini Award in 2006. In 1992, he wrote and directed his first feature for the big screen, Time is Money. Emotional Arithmetic is his second. He lives in Montreal, thus permitting him to endow his works with the appropriate combination of French and North-American culture.
