VATICAN CITY, JUNE 23, 2009 ( Rome Reports has released the first in-depth documentary on Benedict XVI from his childhood in Bavaria, Germany, through the first years of his pontificate.

Titled "Benedict XVI: A Love Affair With the Truth," the 54-minute biographical film includes footage of Joseph Ratzinger as a boy growing up in Nazi Germany, to his ordination to the priesthood, as a cardinal and head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and his election to the papacy.

"This film reveals the real Joseph Ratzinger, a man who always sought and loved the truth, and has combined a brilliant mind with the pastoral heart of a shepherd in love with his flock," reports HDH communication, the exclusive distributor of Vatican Television Center productions.
