Is the image from the Italian film the Matriarca?
No, from The Bitter Tears of Petra von KANT.
“The German poet Heinrich Heine once said of Immanuel Kant that the history of his life would be hard to write, since Kant had neither life nor history.”
The intro says he eschewed the company of fellow philosopher-academics, and liked to hang out with “regular guys.” He was also pretty mean at billiards. Heine sounds pretty nasty.
I remember having read that people set there watch when he passed around a certain corner of a certain street, since he was a man of totally fixed habits. But I might be wrong.
