Not a big "foreign film" person but I'll do my best given what I know.

United Kingdom: Shaun Of The Dead, Mean Machine

United States: Pulp Fiction, American Beauty

Japan: Battle Royale

Australia: Mad Max

Canada: Team America

Since the creators of Team America were Canadian, it's now a Canadian film regardless of where it was made or any other little details >_>
