One cannot recommend this film strongly enough.

The Hollywood Reporter
The madness of Holocaust survivors is here played mainly for dark comedy. The film's dazzling central performance in a mental institute finds Jeff Goldblum in the role of his career.
75
In a stunning lead performance, Goldblum stars as a brilliant, apolitical jester.

Variety
Largely set in two of the least appetizing locations imaginable, a concentration camp and an insane asylum, this is a rigorously made film that does almost nothing to invite the viewer into its world.
60
In a less competitive year, Jeff Goldblum would have had a shot at an Oscar nod for his performance in Adam Resurrected.
50
The director, Paul Schrader, tries for cleansing audacity, but ends up too close to farce.
40
The New York Times
The film is so flat that it leaves you wondering if Mr. Kaniuk's book is ultimately untranslatable to the screen.
38
Goldblum's wobbly German accent and the staginess of the script doom this effort by Paul Schrader ("American Gigolo").
