Director and writer Siegfried Kuehn) has created this farce based on the theme of a modern Don Juan, a director (Hilmar Thate) of operas behaving exactly like the protagonist of Mozart's "Don Giovanni," the opera he is currently directing. As the title of this film indicates, the director not only lives on Karl Liebkhnect street (Karl "love-slave" avenue), he also lives up to his address by maintaining a wife at home, a lover in the opera company, and a desire for "Don Giovanni's" lead female singer. Because of the director's love life, the production company starts to come apart at the seams as antagonisms rise, yet like the opera's denouement itself, the company gets its two acts together while the director has his own "tangled web" to somehow unravel, strand by reluctant strand.
