MOVIES Cannes film festival

As a prestigious and time-honored event, the famed film festival has a long history of overzealous applause. The celebrated actors and directors stand awkwardly for the entire duration, unsure of what to do with their hands, and it's weird but sweet.

Of course, a standing ovation always trumps being booed, for which the festival is also notorious, despite its elite crowds. Surprising films like 'Taxi Driver' (1976), 'L'Avventura' (1960), and Sofia Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette' (2006) were all booed by men and women in tuxedos and gowns.

Tarantino's 1994 'Pulp Fiction' was the cause of some boos at the festival as well, but only when it won the Palme d'Or over Krzysztof Kieślowski's 'Three Colors: Red.' Last year, however, he entered the ranks of the films with the most applause with 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,' earning a seven-minute-long (some say six) standing ovation.

According to a list gathered by Quartz from news reports over the years, many surprising films have earned the longest standing ovations in Cannes history. 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' doesn't even crack the top 10! Click through to find out the films with the most physically demanding fanfare.
