In the house of the middle-class, wealthy German family Crohnen, things go haywire. On the outside, the facade of the beautiful appearance is preserved, but the married couple Katja and Felix have long grown apart. Family head Felix owes his social rise, the success of his company and the doctorate to the ambition and money of his wife, which does not prevent him from having a love affair with the Yugoslav domestic worker Gabriele.
Katja Crohnen, on the other hand, has also looked elsewhere and has bought a toy boy, a man around two decades younger with the mysterious name Blueboy. The affair lets you forget the frustration with your unfaithful husband for a while. The couple also have a daughter who is not only nymphomaniac, but ultimately teases her own mother's lover. Soon all of the storylines are heading for an internal family disaster.
Either way is life was filmed from June 18 to July 15, 1973 in Munich and the surrounding area as well as in Studio Heberthal and premiered on January 23, 1976 in Stuttgart with a long delay.
Joachim von Vietinghoff was in charge of production and Veit Relin designed the costumes.
The title takes up a famous chanson by Theo Mackeben in a new adaptation by Abi Ofarim and Joachim Ludwig, which Brigitte Horney had performed in the original version in 1934 in the film Liebe, Tod und Teufel .
The lexicon of international films tore the strip and saw it as a "colportage without any social relevance or artistic quality".
