    Unexpectedly, the host for this film is, instead of the usual
    I get ‘This site can’t be reached’.

    So I found the title on YouTube and used JDownloader 2 to get it.

    JDownloader returned an m4a file (audio stream), an mp4 file (combined A/V files), 2 Portuguese subtitle files, a text file, and a screencap.
