Adam Resurrected (אדם בן כלב, Adam Ben Kelev) is an American-German-Israeli film, directed by Paul Schrader and adapted from Yoram Kaniuk's novel of the same name published in Israel in 1968. The book's original name literally means "Man, son of a dog". It was screened at several film festivals, including Telluride, Toronto, Mill Valley, AFI, Haifa Film Festival, Valladolid, The Palm Springs International Film Festival and the London Jewish Film Festival. It was released in Germany on January 22, 2009.

It follows the story of Adam Stein, a charismatic patient of a psychiatric asylum for Holocaust survivors in Israel, in 1961. Jeff Goldblum stars as Adam, alongside Willem Dafoe, Derek Jacobi and Ayelet Zurer. Several major German stars, including Moritz Bleibtreu, Veronica Ferres, Juliane Köhler and Joachim Król, play supporting roles.
