La Invitation can leave viewers bewildered about what they just watched. Without reading the synopsis beforehand, viewers will have to arrive at the film's conflict themselves. Accompanied by dragging scenes, the film will intentionally or unintentionally bury the conflict with day to day life. Eventually, it will surface that the main character is pregnant. However, her conflict in keeping the child is only expounded on suggestively in the last scene. In spite of this, La Invitation will show clever visuals of day to day Malaysian life.

Having a child is a big responsibility. But the decision of having an abortion or not is a bigger one. A decision which the mother will carry for the rest of her life. The cinematography is clear and crisp. But the acting of the lead actor is a bit dull. The film was taken in a matter of fact style but the lead's lack luster acting was disappointing.

  • quite confusing  for me,  maybe a saving grace would be the musical scoring  especially towards the end of the film.
