Camino is a 2008 Spanish drama film directed by Javier Fesser. The film is inspired by the real story of Alexia González-Barros, a girl who died from spinal cancer at age 14 in 1985 and who is in process of canonization.

The film is controversial because Alexia's siblings said it was a distortion of the girl's history. They also objected to Fesser's use of Alexia's full name in his dedication, despite him having undertaken not to directly identify her. He calls her "Camino" ("the way") in the film, referencing "the way" to sainthood she apparently undergoes.
