As White as in Snow (Swedish title: Så vit som en snö) is a Swedish film directed by Jan Troell. It was released in 2001. It won three Guldbagge Awards, for best film, best direction and best cinematography, and was nominated for best screenplay[citation needed].

The screenplay is based on the novel Den ofullbordade himlen by Jacques Werup, which in turn is very loosely inspired by the life of Elsa Andersson, the first woman aviator in Sweden. She is portrayed by Amanda Ooms in the movie. Other key characters are played by Björn Granath, Stina Ekblad, Shanti Roney, Björn Kjellman, Reine Brynolfsson and Rikard Wolff.

The grammatically awkward title (literally translated "As white as a snow") is a quote from a poem/song ("Lejonbruden"), which is performed in the movie.
