Fausto 5.0 is the last part of a trilogy dedicated to the figure of Faust. The first two instalments were F@ust 3.0 (originally a play) and The Damnation of Faust (originally an opera). All three films were developed for the screen by La Fura dels Baus, an experimental theatre group from Barcelona.
A doctor – Fausto – on the verge of a nervous breakdown, meets a former patient – Santos Vella – who promises to grant his every wish. Reality starts dissolving and Fausto begins to lose control.
