Sure, because those movies take place in more than one country. It’s not an error!

If you can name a film set in Ireland that won the Oscar for Best Picture, I’ll add it! I didn’t find one.

What movies do you have listed as having scenes in Germany? There must be more than three... All Quiet... Patton... Grand Hotel... Schindler's List?

Yep, All Quiet, Patton and Grand Hotel.

Schindler’s List is set in Poland, and ends in the Czech Republic and Israel. I haven’t seen it for a while so I may be forgetting scenes in Germany. I checked wiki summaries for all the Best Picture films and didn’t see any German scenes mentioned for Schindler’s List. Can you point to any? If so will include it :)
