The ambitious punk rocker Max (Tim Oliver Schultz) and the eco-activist Inge (Paula Kalenberg) cannot stand each other, ever since Max publicly exposed her by singing the offensive song "When Inge is Dancing" in front of the whole school. But for Max and his classmates Fabio (Tino Mewes), Joscha (Constantin von Jascheroff) and Lukas (Thando Walbaum) this song in particular has become a real hit at school as well as in the regional music scene: Their band called Systemfehler is on the verge of a breakthrough. But just before the important gig, which could get them a record deal, guitarist Josha is injured and can't play. Max' cool uncle, the former pop star Herb "King" Koenig (Peter Kraus), makes a suggestion: Inge happens to be an excellent guitarist, and the only person who can fill in at such short notice. But when Max asks for her help, she imposes one non-negotiable condition: If she decides to play with the band, they will not perform the song "Wenn Inge tanzt". Is the band and ...Written by
While Systemfehler is a school band in the movie, all actors playing the band members were actually much older than their characters are likely meant to be: Tim Oliver Schultz was exactly eleven days short of his 25th birthday when the film was released. Paula Kalenberg was 26, Constantin von Jascheroff and Thando Walbaum both were 27. Tino Mewes (although his character does not seem to go to school anymore) even had turned 30 a few months before.

You can't deny what it is: It's an teeny-movie designed for (guess what!) Teenagers. But after all it did surprisingly good job: The storyline revolving around a young teenager punk-rock-band who's only successful song is "If Inge Dances", a denunciating song about one of their classmates, of course is predictable & less innovative; nevertheless the synergy of the young (&quite talented) actors, a funny story-concept and a groovy theme song make this movie happen to be enjoyable. On top of that there a some jokes that do not only try to be funny, but are really funny in fact.
Overall you naturally have to admit it's typical German/European: Some party scenes, drugs, naked girls and boys; though in comparison with the average European teeny-movie this one is better by a little slice. And this little slice is vital.
So "If Inge Dances" can be recommended to everyone who likes (European) teeny-movies in general, punk-rock in particular or just likes to be entertained without a sophisticated plot to follow. Also a good recommendation for young couples.
