Japan - Kuroi ame (1989)
Australia - Walkabout (1971)
Canada - Crash (1996), perhaps? This one's hard due to the amount of co-productions with USA.
France - The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928)
Spain - Cría cuervos (1976)

Off the top of my head:

Japan - Ugetsu Monogatari (1953)
Australia - Walkabout (1971)
Canada - Jesus of Montreal (1989) - This is really hard. There's probably a Canadian movie I like more I'm not thinking of right now.
France - Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) - Or any of a dozen or so others. This is just the first one I thought of.
Spain - Viridiana (1961) - What the hell. For lack of any better ideas, let's double up on Bunuel.

Thanks for all the interesting replies. 8-)

I had also strongly considered.... "Walkabout', 'Jean de Florette' (How did you like 'Manon of the Spring'?) & 'Spirit of the Beehive'.

I'd never heard of 'Cría cuervos' before, but it sounds like something up my alley. I'll look into that.
