The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, tucked away in upstate New York in a small town called Cooperstown, is far from any major media market or big league stadium. Yet no sports hall of fame’s membership is so hallowed, nor its qualifications so debated, nor its voting process so dissected.

Perseguitato dalla fame, Freddy Mancini, ricco e pachidermico cinquantenne americano in viaggio di piacere a Praga, non riesce a prendere sonno. In albergo, a notte fonda, nessuno è disposto ad aprire le cucine, per cui Mancini si tuffa per le vie della città a caccia di un locale dove saziarsi: una scappatella che gli costa cara, perché assiste a un rapimento che cambierà la sua vita. Nella stessa città, alla stessa ora. l'ambasciatore olandese Felix Hoffman, rimasto solo dopo un party principesco, sta divorando i resti del buffet…

"Conosciamo la fame, siamo abituati alla fame: abbiamo fame due, tre volte al giorno. Nelle nostre vite non esiste niente che sia più frequente, più costante, più presente della fame - e, al tempo stesso, per la maggior parte di noi, niente che sia più lontano dalla fame vera". Per comprenderla, per raccontarla, Martin Caparrós ha viaggiato attraverso l'India, il Bangladesh, il Niger, il Kenya, il Sudan, il Madagascar, l'Argentina, gli Stati Uniti, la Spagna. Li ha incontrato persone che, per diverse ragioni - siccità, povertà estrema, guerre, emarginazione - soffrono la fame…

Fame was a film directed by Alan Parker, a serious auteur (some would say overly serious, especially in light of the work that came later) who designed the film for posterity, and the same attitude carried over the music. Yes, the production techniques often do sound dated – the over-reliance on state-of-the-art synthesizer ironically now sounds helplessly tied to the year of its creation – but the music by Michael Gore is dynamic, varied, and alive, sung with real passion and vigor, and it still retains its essential spark 23 years after it was a pop culture phenomenon. Sure, it's glitzy and glossy, sounding like show tunes, but that's the tradition of this music, and it was done better than most Broadway tunes and movie soundtracks of the '80s. Years later, this still has the spark and vitality of kids trying to make their big break, no matter the kind of music they're singing, and that's one of the main reasons (along with Gore's fine compositions) Fame retains its power and entertainment value years later.

Fame is set at New York's High School of Performing Arts, where talented teens train for show-business careers. The film concentrates on five of the most gifted students: singer Irene Cara, actors Paul McCrane and Barry Miller, dancer Gene Anthony Ray, and musician Lee Currieri. More so than the subsequent TV series Fame, the film emphasizes the importance of keeping up one's academic achievements in this specialized school. The faculty includes no-nonsense English teacher Ann Meara, erudite musical instructor Albert Hague, and martinet dance teacher Debbie Allen. Of the film's cast, Ray, Currieri, Allen and Hague were carried over to the TV version of Fame, which premiered in 1981. The score for the film version of Fame was honored with an Academy Award.
