Hi, Dibyayan.

I do love the trilogies poll of yours having similar mood of idea, comparing to which this current poll looks like by another author ;)

If only the initial list would be strong enough for the initial general idea, but it is not, and I wonder how the below movies could be missed there:
They are world-wide acclaimed by critics to constitute the part of "The Best 1990s".

I suggest to keep the "Blue" or "Red" as single option for the "Three Colors" trilogy, and to link the rest two in the description. This way we have two more options to add.

And one more suggestion is to exclude:
Masumiyet (1997),
Her Sey Çok Güzel Olacak (1998),
Sarfarosh (1999)
as having no world-wide popularity, as well as not being in the Top 1000 of IMDb. 
This way we have three more options to add, and five in total.

Finally, the above-suggested Beau travail (1999) having only 7,000 votes can be left outside, but I still recommend it FYC to find one more room for this option.

Sorry for the big volume of text, and
Thank you

Dibyayan,

If it is a criterium that the film should not be in English, then films like Shine, Cube and Once Were Warriors do not qualify.
