06/05, called May 6th in English-speaking countries, is a Dutch 2004 film directed by Theo van Gogh, based on the novel De Zesde Mei by Tomas Ross.[1]

The film is a fictional version of the events that led to the assassination of the Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn on 6 May 2002.[1] The lines between reality and fiction are blurred in 06/05. It is the last film of Theo van Gogh, who was assassinated himself in 2004.

For the finances of this movie, Theo van Gogh drove a bargain with Dutch internet provider Tiscali. For the first time in the Netherlands, a movie was first released on the internet in December 2004. People could watch it for payment. It opened at cinemas in January 2005.
