I can't pick just one so here's a list of good foreign language films.

Alice
Faust
Little Otik
^Directed by Jan Svankmajer

The Double Life Of Veronique
Three Colours Trilogy (Red, White & Blue)
^Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski

Joint Security Area
Sympathy For Mr Vengeance
Oldboy
Lady Vengeance
I'm A Cyborg But That's OK
^Directed by Park Chan-wook

13 Assasins
As the Gods Will
Audition
Big Bang Love, Juvenile A
Crows Zero 1 & 2
Dead Or Alive Trilogy
Full Metal Yakuza
Gods Puzzle
Gozu
Ichi The Killer
Izo
One Missed Call
The Bird People In China
The Happiness Of The Katakuris
Visitor Q
Yakuza Apocalypse
^Directed by Takashi Miike (Brilliant and insanely prolific. There are loads more I could post.)

All About My Mother
Bad Education
Dark Habits
Kika
Talk To Her
The Skin I live In
Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
Volver
Women On The Verge Of  A Nervous Breakdown
^Directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Asian Films[/a]
13 (Beloved)
Alone
Death Note 1 & 2
Ghost Game
Haunted Apartments
Hausu
Infernal Affairs Trilogy [the inspiration for The Departed]
Ju-On: The Grudge [way better than the American remake]
Kung Fu Hustle
Nightmare Detective
Ringu 1 & 2
Sars Wars
Save the Green Planet
Shaolin Soccer
Suicide Club / Circle
The Host
Versus
Zatoichi

European films
Accion Mutante
Das Experiment
Delicatessen
Dobermann
Insomnia
MicMacs
Ne Le Dis A Personne (Tell No One)
Open Your Eyes
The City Of Lost Children
Y Tu Mama Tambien

All of Michael Haneke's films (Sometimes a bit grim but always brilliant. Skip the US remake of Funny Games for the original. Even though it's a shot for shot remake by the same director I think knowing who the actors are in the remake takes you out of the experience.)

There a bit of everything here (drama, thriller, horror, comedy, surrealism) from several different countries. There's probably loads more I've forgotten but you should have enough to keep you going. :-)

Many come to mind when I start to think on it, but this one almost always comes to mind first…

Okuribito ("Departures") (2008)

Trailer…

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1069238/

Additional information…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Departures_(2008_film)


Winner in the “Best Foreign Language Film” category at the 81st Academy Awards in 2009 (and I’ve laughed and cried every time watching it…at least 3 times so far).

My all-time fave is PROFONDO ROSSO. EARLY Dario Argento was GREAT - and it was a shame when he went all "tits-n-ass".
