Or do a few countries, but limit yourself to one movie from each country. Basically just recommend a movie from there you love dearly and want others to see.
Japan - Paprika. I know, a animated movie. But, they have a wonderful animation history and Paprika is the peak. Not even a Miyazaki movie and not a children’s movie. Check it out. And prepare for your mind to be blown.
Great Britain - In Bruges. Well, this is one of my choices for top movies of the last decade, so no shock here. Just an amazing movie.
Ireland - Calvary. Now, I’m cheating because this is also a British movie, but I believe this was funded by the Irish government, while In Bruges is British-American. A story about a priest who is…good. Not a film about a rotten priest, but rather one about someone trying to do the right thing. Love it.
China - House of Flying Daggers - Not a hugely shocking choice here. China’s best director and certainly one of all movies best cinematographers. A great score as well.
