Hanna Schygulla (1943 - )
Jakob von Gunten (1971) [Lisa Benjamenta]: Presumably dies of despair and loneliness. (I haven't seen this movie, but I have seen Alice Krige's death in Institute Benjamenta, based on the same story.)

The Marriage of Maria Braun (1979) [Maria Braun]: Killed in an explosion when she lights a cigarette after leaving the gas on. (It's ambiguous whether this was an accident or suicide.) As I recall, we see and hear the explosion from the other room, and do not see her body afterwards.

Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980) [Eva]: Shot in the chest, along with Roger Fritz, by Gottfried John in a dream sequence/hallucination. (She survives the mini-series in reality.)

The Summer of Miss Forbes (1988) [Miss Forbes]: Drowned in the ocean. (I don't remember the exact circumstances, not even whether it was suicide, murder, or an accident.) (Nudity alert: Topless)

Dead Again (1991) [Inga]: Smothered with a pillow by her son (Derek Jacobi). The scene cuts away as soon as he covers her face, and her body is not shown afterwards. (She's made up to look much older than she actually was at the time.)
