The Perfect Human (Danish: Det Perfekte Menneske) is a 1967 film by Jørgen Leth lasting 12 minutes. It depicts a man and a woman, both labelled 'the perfect human', in a detached manner, as though they were subjects in a zoo.

The film was later seen in five different versions when Leth was challenged by filmmaker Lars Von Trier which was compiled in The Five Obstructions.
