Fausto 5.0 is a fantasy film made in Spain and released in 2001.

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).[1] All three films were developed for the screen by La Fura dels Baus, an experimental theatre group from Barcelona.[2]


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.[3][4][5]
