As she moved into her forties, she essayed character roles, sometimes in international films: Bones (1985), Operation Dead End (1986), The Eighth Day (1990), Kai Rabe vs the Vatican Killer (1998), No Place to Go (2000), Red and Blue (2003), Vivere (2007), Cherry Blossoms (2008), Hanni & Nanni (2010), Das Blaue vom Himmel (2011), Tour de Force (2014), Hanna's Sleeping Dogs (2016), 100 Things (2018), Berlin, I Love You (2109), A Rose in Winter (2019), her last, and many more.
