As White as in Snow (Swedish title: Så vit som en snö) is a Swedish film which was released to cinemas in Sweden on 16 February 2001, directed by Jan Troell. It won three Guldbagge Awards, for best film, best direction and best cinematography, and was nominated for best screenplay.
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.Amanda Ooms - Elsa Andersson
