The great disjunctive of Sacheri

Eduardo Sacheri, the writer and co-writer of “El secreto de sus ojos”, revealed why Racing fans appear in the film.

Eduardo Sacheri

The passion that a fan feels for his club is one of those things that are not explained. Who knows  Eduardo Sacheri  (I was lucky enough to be his high  school student  ; you may know him through the media and networks) knows that there is something that is associated with his figure indelibly:  Sacheri is a fan of  Independiente  . Why, then, are there  Racing fans on the court scene of  El secrecto de his eyes  ?

 Ten years ago, Argentina won its second Oscar for Best Foreign Film (the first had been in 1986 for Luis Puenzo's La historia oficial).  In 2010, it was the turn of  El secreto de sus ojos , the film by   Juan José Campanella  based on a novel by Eduardo Sacheri ( The question of his eyes ), of which the writer was also a co-writer.

In one of the scenes, there is the chase of the murderer of history on a  football field , in the middle of a match of the team of which he is a fan. What is that team?  Racing . The choice of the club from which t-shirts, flags and all colors would be shown was not an easy decision for the writer, whose heart is precisely with the greatest rival of the Academy. The motives, until today, were a mystery.

Why Racing?

Many believed it was due to the presence of another fan:   Guillermo Francella  , one of the protagonists of the film, is a renowned Racing fan. But no. Besides, it's not his character who admires that team in the film. In an  Instagram  live with the sports site  Soy del Rojo , Eduardo Sacheri unveiled the unknown.

At the time of choosing the team that could be the killer fan, I stayed Racing and Independiente and, honestly, I didn't want to make a rapist, puncher, killer, fan of my club. Okay, if we had done it as Independiente, we could have seen the extras singing songs from Independiente and some red rag. But the truth was to me because of the liver to associate Independiente with that figure.

The choice was, then, a way to take care of his club. In addition,  Sacheri  acknowledged that, beyond the fanaticism he feels for the Red, passion is not something exclusive to that team: “What I say about passion — taking the thermos out of my head — is that everyone clubs have the possibility to love our clubs passionately and even uncontrollably, it is not exclusive of them (by Racing) nor of us either.”
