Assuming he's not [[UsefulNotes/CheGuevara Guevara]] (and he's not played as such is some productions), and he's not multiple people, this may be the most likely explanation for what his deal is and why he keeps following her. He portrays her negatively in his narration because he's jealous and thinks she belongs with him. In the film Banderas's portrayal gives off a "jilted boyfriend" feel at several points, particularly the fact that he basically ''spits'' "Don't look down; it's a long long way to fall" at her as he watches her dance with Peron at the inaugural ball. At the very end of the film, he and Peron also share a rather WorthyPoopnent-esque stare, and he [[spoiler: practically makes out with Eva's coffin]].

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Che is many people, not one]]
Admittedly more of a [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Doylist WMG than a Watsonian one]], but at least in the film a number of Che's guises seem to be mutually exclusive with each other - he's both the poor laborer who inspires Eva to set up her charity fund and a guest at the swanky party Peron brings her to in the "Peron's Latest Flame" sequence, for instance. The easiest explanation would be that in reality (well, fictional reality), all these characters are different people stepping into the narrator's role when required, and are played by the same actor for convenience's sake.

[[WMG: Che loved Eva]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: [[UnreliableNarrator Che is displaying an intentionally inaccurate version of reality.]]]]
As an anti-Peronist Marxist, he's going to want to make Eva look bad.
