Storyline

Political intrigue surrounding a Paris Capuchin monastery describes only one aspect of "Ainsi Soient-ils (Churchmen)". It's not overly melodramatic, and, while respecting the core humanitarianism of Christianity, it pulls no punches lambasting church hierarchy. The series follows the lives of five seminarians and the power struggle between the seminary head and his superiors in Rome, as well as the dissonance of a medieval religious institution in a modern, secular society. Written by Miriam Solon

Many paths to the Seminary
9 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I am writing here a review for season one only. I have read about the series in French newspapers and I found the theme original and interesting so I decided to buy the DVDs' of the first season. I was not disappointed. The acting is good and the topics treated deal with major issues of life choices and moral dilemmas that befall most people in modern society. The characters of the young seminarians, for the series has as heroes young people training for the Roman Catholic priesthood in contemporary Paris, are all singular in the sense that are all characters with particular problems instead of adhering to an average mundane grey conformity. Each of them has a particular personal drama to overcome in his path to Christian formation. Their superiors in the Seminary or in the Vatican are also colorful personalities. They are all subject to normal human temptations to which they often succumb. The production is relatively rich. If you are interested in moral dilemmas in a modern setting and not very touchy in your religious sensibilities you must watch Ainsi soient-ils.
