I actually enjoyed this exceptional avante guarde piece of art. Those who want the obvious put in front of them would be lost on this one. There are many ways to read into the words and thoughts of Esther and Jacob, and the beauty in it's entanglement is through the eye and 'ears' of the beholder on this one.
