Clever and very well-written comedy

I watched "Les Compagnons de la marguerite" this evening and I was shocked by it's quality. It has been placed in a block of old and already forgotten comedies - so I did not suspect so great movie. I laughed all the time - because of perfectly written dialogues, witty gags and a superb plot (the movie is about a clerk, who can perfectly change dates in the official registers and helps people to divorce them without any long lawsuits). My rating is 9/10.
