In that year, Ma also played Shi Xiangyun in a movie version of Dream of the Red Chamber, Parts 3, 4, 5, 6 (Hongloumeng III, IV, V, VI).

(Beijing nizao, 1990, directed by the renowned woman director Zhang Nuanxin), War of Divorce (Lihun dazhan, 1992) and The Woman from the Lake of Scented Souls (Xianghunnü). In 1997, Ma acted as the chief nurse in/Have a Father, Too (Wo yeyou baba), a film about children afflicted with leukaemia fighting for life which won her the best supporting actress award at the 1998 ‘Golden Rooster’ awards. Her most recent appearances include Weekend Lover (Zhoumo qingren, 1995), Frozen (Jidu hanlen, 1997) and The Unusual Summer Day (Feichang xiari, 1999). Most of Ma’s films are comedies.
