Every morning, since the 1960s, Marcel confides in his cassette tape recorder. It is from his reflections on life, from the infinitely small to the immensely large, that this documentary unfolds accross the ages. Au boute du rien pantoute recounts the incredible life of a man with multiple personalities: a versatile actor, an exceptional improviser, a screenwriter, and a lyricist in his spare time. Filmed by his son, Jérôme Sabourin, this playful portrait-essay is a hymn to life, offering an intimate and social perspective of a free-spirited man who has boarded "every bus" that has come his way. As he approaches 89 years old, Marcel Sabourin narrates our history, and his own, with all the whimsy that defines him.
