Any particular country/region?  A few come to mind:

China:          TO LIVE (Zhang Yimou)
China:          FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE (Chen Kaige)
China (but "international" in production):      THE LAST EMPEROR
Japan:          INSECT WOMAN (Shohei Imamura)
Hungary:        SUNSHINE (Istvan Szabo)
Cuba:           LUCIA (Humberto Solas)
Russia:         THE INNER CIRCLE (Andrei Konchalovsky)

Also, not quite as "international," but of interest:
THE GODFATHER (Parts 1 and 2)
ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA
AVALON
