I'm looking for the original foreign inspiration films for US remakes AND foreign remakes of US films.

There's the originals I know of:
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
series (2009, Swedish)
Let The Right One In
Shall We Dance?
I'm not sure if Battle Royale
really counts, though it's definitely a great and similar film...
But I'm looking for what could definitely be seen, without question, as remakes. Any genre (I know there's horror out there I'm forgetting of course), any nationality. Hopefully the foreign versions are actually good, as in the above 3 examples.
Please include a year if you know it.
And I don't know of any foreign adaptions of US films, but I'd love to watch any I could get my hands on, especially if they're better than the originals!
