Ben is a true Don Juan who does not hesitate to cheat on his girlfriend, Emily. He treats love and his relationships with women in a light, superficial way until he meets Chlo, with whom he falls desperately in love. Things become complicated when Chlo explains to him that she is scared to commit because she does not want to lose her freedom. Our seducer must therefore go in search of a new conquest in order to win over the one he loves.
Toy Love is the third film by Harry Sinclair who began his career in film as an actor, seen for example as Elrond in Lord of The Rings. If his dramatic comedy Topless Women Talk About Their Lives, released in 1997, presented the female aspect of youth, then Toy Love is a veritable satire on male behaviour. This film won the Audience Award at the Fantasporto Film Festival in Portugal. In 2000, he also directed the burlesque fairy tale, The Price of Milk.
